So my former straight A student now has a one A, a couple B's, a C and an F. I am very upset. I asked him why he has a C in reading, his best subject. He told me he hasn't been turning in his weekend reading logs. He used going to his dad's as an excuse. Ummmm he always used to take his reading logs with him to his dad's and do them there. If for some reason he couldn't finish them at his dad's, he would do them on Monday morning at before school daycare. Now he's not even doing that. And this kid loves to read. Always has a book in front of his face. He just hasn't been writing the paragraphs each day for the logs. And as far as the F is concerned, he had a mummy project due last Thursday for his social studies class. He didn't even tell me about it till last minute, as in the day before it was due. He was supposed to work on it Christmas break! So I went ahead and emailed the teacher and asked if he could turn it in late, because the project called for me going out to buy supplies for it. His teacher told me he could finish it over this last weekend and he would get at least a B on it. So the project called for using duct tape. I borrowed some from my mom. She brought it over to my house, gave it to easy child and he lost it. We both looked everywhere for it. I have no idea what could have happened to it. It literally just vanished. I just checked his grades online and now he has an F in that class because he is not only missing the mummy assignment, but he is also missing another assignment as well. He used to be so on top of his schoolwork. He was so proud of himself for making the honor roll. Bragged about it to everyone. Now his grades are slipping. Why is he suddenly not caring anymore? Could his Focalin have stopped working for him? Maybe he needs a higher dose? What do you all think?
